12 oz. bottle poured into a pint glass.
A- Amber in color, with not much head. What little head there is quickly dissipates into a film on top of the beer.
S- Buttery malt aroma with some hoppy pine and citrus.
T- Same slick, buttery malts with some citrusy hops. An orange-like flavor peeks through and works well with the malts.
M- Slick and crisp, with prickly carbonation.
D- Pretty good. A nice session beer, with a good balance of flavors.
A very nice lager, and a refreshing accessible beer. Seems to fill the same niche that SA Boston Lager does. A nice, balanced lager with some hop presence. Good for breaking in a craft newbie or enjoying with a meal or with friends.

On tap at LaGuardia airport in New York into a stein.
A-My pour arrived with about one and one-half fingers of sticky, off-white head. Lacing was chunky at first. The beer is light-golden in color with a bit of active carbonation visible in the clear liquid.
S-The aroma is mild as you would expect. I smell some toasted bread, biscuit, and a bit dry, grassy hops. Pleasant and simple.
T-The taste tracks the smell mostly. The beer is pleasantly crisp, not quite sharp, but certainly not a sweet, malty monster. There is some grain flavor, toasted bread, biscuit, and hints of hoppy bitterness on the finish.
M-The body is medium to light with crisp carbonation of average strength.
O-A simple but enjoyable beer. This thing won't take you away from your Pliny or BCBS habit, but if you need a decent, easy drinking beer at the airport bar, this is a good choice.
Serving type: on-tap
